The wide open seting and interesting decor make a good first impression. The food availblae is a Tapas menu and perfect for a large group. The portion size was ample and the food excellent. There is a great beer selection. The only down side is having gone for the no music option the effect although novel at first becomes a... More

I've been a couple of times here and I've never been disappointed. Great tapas, nice atmosphere! The service is a bit slow as the place is huge, but nothing that disappoints.

Brought some visiting friends here and weren't disappointed! The waiter gave us very useful advice on our order. Food arrived quickly. Good portions and all extremely tasty. Quite noisy in here but great atmosphere.

Great atmosphere and huge portions of tapas. The acoustics are a bit odd so it was hard to hear each other at a big table. Food was really good though and the jug of sangria wonderful! They also have a nice cocktail bar upstairs.

We came here twice during our recent visit to Dublin - why? - it's a cool building, the food is tasty, and the atmosphere of happy people sharing tapas and drinks is energizing. This place delivers on exactly what we wanted - nice tapas, fresh ingredients, something for everyone to enjoy. Use of former factory space is great - feels... More

I had been to Market bar many times for drinks and a few times for evening tapas but never thought of it for lunch until I started working round the corner recently. I always get their lunch special - sandwich or wrap of the day with small bowl of soup. Always good and great value! Market bar is huge too... More

If you're looking for a great value early evening meal in Dublin, then I don't think you'll do better than the Market Bar. 2 Tapas and a glass of wine for €14. The tapas are great sized portions and you will definitely be full up after having two. On our most recent visit, we had the fish stew, feta and... More

The market bar is definitely a nice place to go for Spanish food in Dublin, especially with friends! The food is lovely, especially the meatballs and goats cheese crostini! What is really convenient is that you can chose every tapa in small or large size. The service is average, they are always really busy and also let you feel that.... More
